As an experienced writer and social media consultant, I’ve been actively using Clubhouse since its early invite-only days. One of the most powerful features of this audio-based social platform is the ability to seamlessly invite others to join ongoing conversations, even if they don’t have the app installed. In this article, I’ll provide a step-by-step guide on how to send an invite link to bring friends, colleagues, or subject matter experts into a Clubhouse room.

Understanding Clubhouse Room Invites

Clubhouse rooms are live audio conversations where participants can join as speakers or listeners. Room creators and moderators have the ability to invite others to join the room, either by selecting existing Clubhouse users or by sharing a direct invite link.

Sharing an invite link is particularly useful when you want to bring someone into the conversation who doesn’t have a Clubhouse account or isn’t already following you on the app. With a single tap, they can instantly join the room as a guest without needing to download the app or create an account.

How to Send an Invite Link on Clubhouse

Sending an invite link on Clubhouse is a straightforward process. Here are the steps:

  1. Join or Start a Room: First, you’ll need to either join an existing room or start a new one. If you’re joining a room, make sure you have the appropriate permissions (e.g., moderator or speaker) to invite others.
  2. Tap the “+” Icon: Once you’re in the room, tap the “+” icon located at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Select “Share Link”: From the menu that appears, select the “Share Link” option.
  4. Copy the Invite Link: A new screen will appear with a unique invite link for the current room. Copy this link by tapping the “Copy Link” button.
  5. Share the Link: Now that you have the invite link copied, you can share it with others via any messaging platform or social media channel of your choice (e.g., text, email, Twitter, WhatsApp).

When someone clicks on the invite link you shared, they’ll be prompted to either open the Clubhouse app (if installed) or join the room as a guest without an account. Guest participants will be identified with a “🎟️” emoji next to their name in the room.

Best Practices for Sharing Invite Links

While sharing invite links is a convenient way to bring new participants into a Clubhouse room, it’s essential to follow some best practices:

  • Provide Context: When sharing the invite link, include a brief description of the room’s topic, speakers, and any relevant context to help the recipient understand what they’re being invited to.
  • Respect Privacy: Only share invite links with individuals who have expressed interest in joining the conversation or who you believe would genuinely benefit from participating.
  • Moderate Guests: As a room moderator, be prepared to manage guest participants effectively. You can mute or remove guests if necessary to maintain a productive and respectful conversation.
  • Encourage Engagement: Once guests have joined the room, encourage them to participate by raising their hand or asking questions. Their unique perspectives can enrich the discussion.

By following these best practices, you can leverage Clubhouse’s invite link feature to foster engaging conversations and build meaningful connections with a diverse audience.

Remember, as a Clubhouse user, you have the power to curate enriching discussions by inviting the right people to join the conversation. Use this feature wisely, and you’ll unlock new opportunities for learning, networking, and personal growth within the Clubhouse community.
